This isn`t what you asked but I thought i`d give you a little heads up on the location of both.
Of the 2 Banana Fan Sea has it all over Nora Beach for location & beach conditions.
Banana Fan is towards the southern end of Chaweng which is my favourite area of Samui because it`s quieter than main Chaweng but still within walking distance of the main entertainment, eating & shopping area.The southern end of Chaweng has in my opinion the best all round beach conditions on Samui,there are a number of nice restaurants & entertainment & shopping options in the general area.
Nora Beach Resort is right at the northern end of Chaweng not in walking distance & from my knowledge not alot around(compared to the southern end).Transportation from Nora won`t be a problem as songtaews run past all hours but I personally like the option to walk if I desire.
Chloe, I `ve recommended Banana Fan to people before & never received any bad feedback or indeed I can`t remember having read too many bad reviews either.
If it was my decision i`d select Banana Fan purely on location alone.
Hope this helps a little
